This week on Art Rocks!, the George Rodrigue Foundation and Louisiana A+ Schools have joined forces with teachers and principals across Louisiana to incorporate art into science, technology, engineering and math classes, making it easier and more exciting for students to learn these subjects. Rodrigue’s son, Jacques will join us in our studio to speak with Art Rocks! host James Fox-Smith. We’ll also meet an Orlando sculptor who uses her love of horses to create her art, and an artist who melds digital and analog images to create animated stories. Plus, the beautiful collection of art celebrating birds at Louisiana State University is this week’s Louisiana Treasure.
